“Untold Stories of the ER” has been picked-up for 10 new one-hour episodes to air on TLC and Discovery Life in fourth quarter 2017. Debuting on April 12, 2004, “Untold Stories of the ER “chronicles real emergency room cases – featuring some of the most extreme situations ever encountered by ER physicians – as reenacted and recounted by the patients who experienced them and the doctors who treated them. The show opens the door to emergency rooms across the country to expose some of medicine’s most harrowing and unbelievable health emergencies.
Documented with full medical accuracy, each episode depicts three different scenarios in which doctors must choose the correct treatment for their patients in a variety of remarkable circumstances. Among the peculiar stories featured in season 12 are a man bitten by a shark who arrives at the hospital with the live shark still clamped to his leg, a man suffering from a snake bite on his wrist with the guilty boa constrictor wrapped around his arm, and a man with a maggot-filled infection on his back.
“Untold Stories of the ER” is produced by GRB Entertainment for Discovery Life and TLC.
